Different Used Car Loan Deals Available:
Hire Purchase is probably the simplest and most common type of car loan.
It will typically (but not always) consist of a small deposit, followed by payments in regular installments over the duration of the agreement, followed by a single final payment.
You are in effect hiring the vehicle up until you make the final payment, after which you will own the vehicle.
A Car or Van Lease purchase is a conditional sale agreement which is ideal for people looking to buy high-end, premium or luxury vehicles.
They usually require ‘advance payments’ (a set number of monthly installments) to begin with. These are in essence the equivalent of a deposit. An amount will be ‘deferred’ until the end of the agreement, the sum of which will depend on the age and mileage of the vehicle at that time the agreement comes to an end.
Regular installments are then paid in between the start and end dates of the agreement. The ‘deferred’ sum must be paid at the end of the agreement and you will then own the car.
Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)
A Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is good for allowing people to buy a more expensive vehicle than they might otherwise be able to afford because the monthly payments involved are smaller than that of other finance types. The amounts are based on the amount the vehicle will depreciate over the course of the agreement rather than the vehicles’ total price.
This type of agreement, is therefore only available to applicants with a good credit history (for more information on credit ratings please check out our How do you rate? section.
A Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) will involve the payment of an initial deposit, to be followed by fixed monthly payments over the length of the agreement. You will not own the car unless you pay an optional fee at the end of the agreement (this will be higher due to the lower monthly repayments). Due to the fact that milage effects the size of your monthly repayments you will also need to stick to an agreed annual mileage quota (any mileage used above this will therefore also incur additional charges).
